Our Lady of Grace of Primolo
The Sanctuary of the Madonna delle Grazie in Primolo was built on the initiative by the pastor John Church in 1670 but the real work is only started with the laying of the foundation stone on Wednesday, August 3, 1688. Two days later the old priest died. His nephew and successor, Don Giovanni Maria Church, extended the initial project. The beautiful shrine was built as the end of 1600 and beginning of 1700 and graced steadily until the present day.
The Sanctuary is still a place of pilgrimage and a place of worship not only for the villagers. The building is located in a landscape of absolute beauty, having been built on a hill that dominates the valley of Chiesa Valmalenco. Below you can see the towns of Lanzada and Caspoggio, looking silhouetted against the sky Pizzo Steps.
The feast of Our Lady of Grace with Holy Mass, procession through the narrow streets of the charming hamlet, a communal meal, is celebrated on the first Sunday of August.

This is a very nicely thought out composition, the church in itself is very beautiful, but shooting from behind the pulpit like this makes me feel I am not looking at an image, but actually standing here. Love the depth of field you chose too, and the light is really excellent.
thanks as always

eccellente esposizione e ottima messa a fuoco, il senso di profondità ne guadagna alla grande.
Molto ricca di affreschi questa chiesa, molto bello anche l'organo.

Interesting interior view of Our Lady of Grace of Primolo, sacred book in foreground, ornate Renaissance artworks, and the large organ which I would love to hear in person.

A well conceived composition that gives us a perfect view of this beautiful church interior. Well exposed with effective control over depth of field. Very good colours and clarity.

J'aime beaucoup le point de vue , comme si tu lisais dans le livre saint tout en regardant les beautés de la petite église , surtout au niveau du jubé et de l'orgue.

hai creato un' ottima composizione per presentare l' interiore di questa chiesa antica. Mi piace il modo creativo ed elegante in cui hai evitato la classica simmetria, includendo nel primo piano un elemento significativo ed interessante. La diffusione ed il tocco della luce fanno degli effetti meravigliosi e creano anche una grande varieta' di tonalita' armoniose. Superba la prospettiva, gradevole l' atmosfera tranquila. Complimenti e grazie!
Tanti saluti e buona giornata,
